Some of our reviews:
I would recommend Bethel Court to everyone, I stayed there with a party of both kids & adults Feb 2010 & had no complaints, Ingrid & Steve are so friendly & helpful, anything you need they assist immediately, 1 of them is always available at any time of day or night. The accommodations are very clean, my bed was amazing. I wanted to take it home with me. Bethel Court has lots of fans & access to hot water!!!! Local taxis are very easy to access; you literally step out your front door into the car, lol.
I can't wait to get back to Bethel Court, I felt safe & welcomed, couldn't ask for more.
Bethel Court was truly an all-around, phenomenal place to call home for a week. I'm an avid traveller and have stayed at over 30 hostels all over the world. The most important things I seek in a hostel include SAFETY, attentive staff, cleanliness/comfort, good value, and location. The owners of Bethel Court, Ingrid and Steve, are hands-down some of the most amazing, sincere, invested, AVAILABLE, and caring business owners with whom I have ever interacted. The facilities are simple, no-frills, and very clean. Also, Lucan, our key to 'real Jamaica,' who also works at Bethel Court, was amazing!!! I'm excited to return!
I stayed with Steve and Ingrid last summer for about 4 days during the annual Reggae Sumfest and was so happy with my stay. I know most that want to be on the main strip may not like where they are. But it is worth staying there. Steve and Ingrid took us in as if we were family. First of all, they picked us up from the airport and brought us to one of their favourite authentic Jamaican restaurants. Then we went back to the room we were staying at. We did not expect to be staying in an apartment at all. It was so nice to have a full kitchen and cable TV. That night they drove us down to the main strip to go listen to some local reggae bands where they stayed and hung out with us.
During the rest of the time, they showed us how to use the public transportation to get to different areas we wanted to visit, how to get to the Reggae Sumfest (when they were not dropping us off), and even lending us chairs to sit out at the concert over the 3 nights. They went above and beyond and they were so affordable. I have talked with many of my friends about the hospitality and convinced them to stay there if and when they visit. Thank you Steve and Ingrid for that lovely time in Jamaica.
